Last night’s dinner featured a new purchase, bought on sale as an experiment (an entirely successful one!):
Salmon burgers! Trying to mix it up a little :D
I have class from 6 to 8 on Wednesdays, at the School of Public Health (Intro to Epidemiology! It’s so cool! It’s so nice that they let undergrads try out classes!) which is a bus ride across town.
So I didn’t get home til 8:30 and I wanted to plan something EASY and FAST.
This was a “throw everybody in the skillet” event.
My home kitchen is in general vastly superior to my school one. The one exception is that at school I have a seriously bangin’ cast iron skillet. I swear, everything that I cook in it tastes better. I’ve been eating summer squash like it’s my job, and this was the best batch yet.
The final meal:
The burger, atop a TJ’s British muffin (I’d forgotten how much I looooove those! And they freeze and thaw beautifully!) along with lettuce and heirloom tomato and SRIRACHA!
The salmon burger was SO GOOD! I was worried about the breading on it, but it was light and flavorful and really enhanced the salmon. It was just a great, albeit nontraditional burger: I love that with a burger you get your slab of meat, your crunchy lettuce, your juicy tomato, in this case your kicky hot sauce. It’s marvy.
With rockin’ summer squash, sautéed in olive oil with just a bit of salt and pepper. SO GORGE!
I’m proud of myself for an unusual indulgence I made. At school I’m usually a cheap bum and spend very very little and sort of feel noble. But at the farmer’s market there were beauuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuutiful raspberries, and even though they were $3 (which is not even that much! And they are local, no less!) I bought ‘em. And I’ve been loving them! Sometimes I have to allow myself to indulge!
